LOCATION
In the heart of Northbridge, Perth’s entertainment precinct. Just walking distance from the city, trains and theatres.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Some of Perth’s diners wouldn’t go near Northbridge for dining, however, many of them are missing out on a lovely little restaurant with great European food created by an international and award-winning chef. The quaint eatery of Oliver’s on James Street hosts a beautiful and welcoming bar, a private function room that enjoys balcony views of the city and Northbridge, and shaded street-side dining tables that includes diners in the Northbridge buzz.

Located at the western end of James Street next to Cinema Paradiso, Oliver’s offers the vibrant atmosphere of the area coupled with casual, relaxed dining that is perfectly completed with an old-fashioned carafe of wine. Owner and UK chef Wayne Willsher has designed a European-inspired menu that features international accents providing something for everyone. There’s an extensive selection of gourmet woodfired pizzas, tapas dishes, and a generous choice of mains featuring pasta, seafood, chicken and some succulent steaks.

The sea-caught barramundi risotto emits fresh oceanic characters accentuated by the earthy flavours of artichoke and mascarpone, while the Mount Barker chicken breast is stuffed with capsicum, goat’s curd and fresh basil, crusted with polenta and served with buttery parsley mash. The roasted Linley Valley pork belly with wood-roasted apple and garlic jus is brimming with comforting flavours that warm you from the inside-out, but this vote goes to the free-range char-grilled lamb rump with potato gnocchi, Provençal vegetables, baby spinach and rosemary jus - it’s good enough to lick the plate clean. Those of you with a sweet tooth must try the dessert tasting plate which is perfect for indecisive diners who like too much of the menu, and it is a truly indulgent way to end a meal. Alternatively, soothe your tastebuds into submission with an international cheese board and some vintage port, or another carafe of wine.

Deb Allen:

Fantastic dining with extremely good service, even though my steak was not the best this was addressed promptly by caring and observant staff who could not do enough. A complimentary bottle of sparkling wine was given, totally unnecessary but gratefully received....we will be back. Thank you Oliver's for a great eveningreview  15/12/2012
